High Altitude Sickness

AMS (acute mountain sickness) is a serious issue. It is the result of the failure of the body to adapt to high altitude and can affect anyone, regardless of age or fitness. It usually occurs above 1,800 meters and the likelihood of being affected increases as you ascend. The way to reduce the affects of altitude is to ascend slowly, 300 meters per day above 3,000 meters until you have acclimatized. Poor acclimatization results in headache, nausea, sleeplessness, difficulty breathing and swelling of fingers and glands. The only cure for AMS is to descend to lower altitude and your guide's decision on this matter is final. When you are planning to trek above 3,000 meters we recommend not walks faster. If you will get altitude sickness please consult with your guide to go down at least 500 meters to recover.

6. Can I recharge my camera and mobile phone?

  • Toilet Paper

  • Comfortable low top boots that are not too heavy, no need for heavy leather boots

10. Are showers available on the trek?

Yes. They are free in Namche but you will have to pay for them once you leave. Some trekkers wait until the end of the trek to shower!

11. How do I avoid Altitude Sickness?

  • Acclimatization – after a 1000m ascent, stay one more night for acclimatization.
  • Do not make a rapid ascend, don’t go too fast too high.
  • No alcohol, sleeping pills or smoking.
  • Drink more fluid 3-4 liters a day – clean water, boiled and filtered, or treated tea/coffee/soup/juice etc.
  • Do not carry heavy packs, 10-12 kgs ok.
  • Climb higher, always sleep lower.
  • Over 3000m, 300 - 500m ascent a day.
  • Never travel alone

12. Will I get altitude sickness?

If you take the precautions above you are less likely to get altitude sickness. However you may still get it above 3000 meters. Watch out for the following symptoms:

  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia / sleeplessness
  • Persistent headache
  • Dizziness, light headache, confusion
  • Disorientation, drunken gait
  • Weakness, fatigue, lassitude, heavy legs
  • Slight swelling of hands and face
  • Breathlessness and breathing irregularly
  • Reduced urine output

These symptoms are to be taken very seriously. In case of appearance of any of the above symptoms any further ascend should be reconsidered; otherwise more serious problems may occur which can even cause death sometimes within a few hours. The only cure for the Altitude Sickness is to descend to a lower elevation immediately. Acclimatization by ascending to no more than 300 to 500 meters per day above 3000 meters and the proper amount of rest are the best methods for preventions of AMS.

If a trekker ever gets an unusual or severe headache, or feels unusually short of breath, they should immediately descend 2,000 feet (600 meters), no matter the time of day. High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE), excess fluid in the lungs, and High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE), swelling of the brain, are rare but life threatening conditions that require immediate descent and medical attention.

13.   Is the water OK to drink? Do I need to bring purifying tablets/filter?

Only ever drink filtered, purified, treated or boiled water. Never drink water straight from the tap. Not even to clean your teeth. It may be fine, but it is not worth the risk.

14.   What happens if my flight to Lukla is cancelled?

Flights by plane and helicopter are prone to cancellations and delays as a result of notorious weather in remote areas and occasional operational complications especially in the Everest region. When these flights are included in the itinerary, we recommend you carry extra money to buy food and accommodation in case of delays. Himalaya Trekking Team will not be responsible for these additional expenses or costs incurred from lost connections, so plan accordingly.

15.   Could we leave some of our luggage in Kathmandu while we trek and collect it later?

It is normal to leave some luggage in your hotel in Kathmandu. Bring a lockable bag to leave behind. On the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla your check-in bag should be under 10 kg and your hand bag should be under 2 kg.

16. Can we use Flycam during our trek?

Flycam its prohibited in Nepal.

17. Do I need to have an earlier trekking experience to do this trek?

You do not need to have trekked in the Himalayas before, but it is a good idea to get fit before you come as you may be trekking for 6-8 hours per day.

18. What we do every day on the trek?

We usually set off in the morning after an early breakfast and we break for lunch, finishing in early to mid-afternoon.

Unforgettable Everest Base Camp!

(5/5)
This has been my first big Trekking experience, and this adventure personally brought me a lot. Thank you so much to the team for such a fantastic trip. Excellent service with a warm welcome right from the airport. Highly professional, ensuring we were taken care of at all times. On the trek itself, we had Mr Pasang Sherpa as our guide and Mr Kaji Sherpa as our porter, who went above and beyond his duty to make sure we had everything we needed. I will never forget how they made it possible, and about the beauty of the path we took. The EBC trek is totally awesome with a diversity of breath-taking landscapes that we travelled in a good comfort thanks to the numerous guest lodge and tea houses. We will never forget this trip. Thank you team!

Wenn ich die Wahl habe...

(5/5)
....dann würde ich niemals jemand anderen nehmen für Trekking in der Region! 

OB, Inhaber, Eigentümer und Seele von Himalaya Trekking Team, hat unsere 2 Trek´s in Kathmandu geplant und umgesetzt. Dank seiner sorgfältigen und liebevollen Planung hatten wir 2 unvergessliche Trips. Zum einen den sehr begehrten Rundweg von Lukla über Nasche Bazar bis hin zum Mt. Everest Base Camp und dann die Besteigung unseres ersten 6.000enders, den Dhaulagiri. Das war dann, anders als der erste Tripp auf viel begangenen Wegen eine Reise ins Ungewisse für uns. OB hat jeder Menge Träger und Ausrüstung besorgt, einen Koch, 2 Hilfsköche und alles, aber auch wirklich alles mit tragen lassen. Wir wurden versorgt wie die Könige! Kein Stress, keine Hektik, keine Pannen! Und das auch noch sensationell günstig! 

Bis heute schwärme ich von diesen Reisen und das sie zu solch einem Erlebnis wurden, lag sicher zu einem erheblichen Teil an der guten Organisation und der freundlichen Unterstützung durch OB und sein Team!

“Unforgettable nepal”

(5/5)

I just did EBC with OB and Uttam in Sept. Both of them are responsible, caring and professional. While OB have a very vast knowledge about the EBC route, Uttam is very friendly, always smiling. They take much care to us. They not only provide us a very good exchange rate but also show us what the real Nepalese food and traditional wine is on the way back to Lukla.

Thank you so much OB and Uttam and your all team members of Himalaya Trekking Team to to make my first trip to Nepal unforgettable. Definitely, I will go back Nepal and I highly recommend OB and Uttam.
